Multi scale Modeling in Computational Neuroscience
September 2nd, 2012
to September 7th, 2012
About the Event
As the field of computational neuroscience continues to mature, it is clear that understanding the nervous system from a computational point of view will require modeling at multiple levels of scale from sub-cellular to systems and behaviour.
This hands-on workshop will consider both issues and techniques involved in modeling nervous systems at single levels of scale as well as the opportunities for scientific discovery when models at different levels of scale are linked. With a strong emphasis on hands-on experience, the workshop will also include lectures focused on multi-scale modeling. It is designed for advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows or faculty interested in the practical application and development of multi-scale modeling techniques.
Although participants may choose another simulator for use in their modeling projects, this workshop will also introduce and provide an opportunity to explore the unique capabilities of GENESIS 3 (G3) for multi-scale modeling
The international faculty include:
- Dr. James M. Bower
- Dr. David Beeman
- Dr. Avrama Blackwell
- Dr. Hugo Cornelis
- Dr. Volker Steuber
- Dr. Mando Rodriguez
